Watch an Animated Q-Tip, James BKS, Idris Elba & Little Simz Travel to Space in the “New Breed” Video

James BKS’ new single features an all-star cast.

Artist and producer and James BKS, who is signed under Idris Elba’s 7Wallace label, has released a new single. The song, called “New Breed,” features an all-star cast: Q-Tip, Little Smiz, and Idris Elba are featured on the song.

Along with the single comes a nifty-looking animated video directed by Stevie Gee and Essy May. The video features the four artists on an adventure that eventually leaves them in space.

In a statement, James BKS talked about the song, saying:

Little Simz, Idris Elba, Q-Tip, and me strongly and proudly represent the New Breed movement, a different way to approach music with no borders, no judgment, no labels. We have learned from our past mistakes and victories and our eyes are on Africa, while in the meantime we embrace our own personal paths, respectively in the UK for Little Simz and Idris Elba, in the U.S. for Q-Tip and in France for me.
